Peasant Cooperatives and Political Change in Peru, McClintock, Cynthia
5 McClintock, Cynthia Peasant Cooperatives and Political Change in Peru
Princeton University Press 1981 069102202X / 9780691022024 softcover used 418 pages, 6 inches by 9 inches tall 
cover: "Sharing with other radical government leaders - such as Castro, Nyerere, Mao, and Allende - the common goal of developing a new political consciousness in their countries, General Juan Velasco Alvarado claimed to be leading Peru toward a 'fully participatory social democracy' from 1968 to 1975. To determine the extent to which this was true or even feasible, Cynthia McClintock examines Peru's experience with self-management and its effect on the political culture of Peru's peasants. This is the first study to apply to the topics of workplace democracy or change in political culture both 'before' and 'after' sample survey data as well as long-term participant observation.

The author shows that, within the self-managed enterprises studied, new patterns of political participation and social solidarity did develop and did so rather rapidly. Peasants' loyalties and commitments, however, were focused upon their individual enterprise, and did not extend beyond it.

Professor McClintock compares Peru's experience with self-management to that of Chile, Mexico, and Yugoslavia, considering social, political, and economic dimensions. She concludes that the greatest problem confronting a reform government is not that of an intractable, traditional, or timid peasantry, but rather that of creating new political and economic structures that offer significant incentives for change."

Guadalajara as I know it . . . live it . . . love it, Royle, Selena
7 Royle, Selena Guadalajara as I know it . . . live it . . . love it
1966 softcover used 106 pages, 5 1/2 inches by 8 inches tall 
from the cover: "If you think this is a guide book . . . you're right. If you think it is just a guide book you're wrong! In a lyric, amusing and sometimes caustic manner Miss Royle has, as she threatens in these pages, opened 'my heart and my address book.' You will be guided to pearls and plumbers, parks and playhouses, fountains and foods, museums and markets, gifts and garages but incidentally you will unconsciously become intimate with the spirit of Mexico, for included are some of those articles which as correspondent for the Mexico City Times, Mexico City News, the Colony Reporter and as feature editor of Spotlight on Guadalajara have made Selena a loving authority on the city and its ways. It can be read like a novel. Once read you'll never be without it."

Condition: Pages are crisp and clean. Binding is tight. Cover has rubbing wear, creases, soiled spots, writing, and wear to the edges and corners.

In the Shadows of State and Capital: The United Fruit Company, Popular Struggle, and Agrarian Restructuring in Ecuador, 1900-1995, Striffler, Steve
8 Striffler, Steve In the Shadows of State and Capital: The United Fruit Company, Popular Struggle, and Agrarian Restructuring in Ecuador, 1900-1995
Duke University Press 2002 softcover used 242 pages, 6 inches by 9 inches tall 
Cover: "In the Shadows of State and Capital tells the story of how Ecuadorian peasants gained, and then lost, control of the banana industry. Providing an ethnographic history of the emergence of subcontracting within Latin American agriculture and of the central role played by class conflict in this process, Steve Striffler looks at the quintessential form of twentieth-century U.S. imperialism in the region - the banana industry and, in particular, the United Fruit Company (Chiquita). He argues that, even within this highly stratified industry, popular struggle has contributed greatly to processes of capitalist transformation and historical change.

Striffler traces the entrance of United Fruit into Ecuador during the 1930s, its worker-induced departure in the 1960s, the troubled process through which contract farming emerged during the last half of the twentieth century, and the continuing struggles of those involved. To explore the influence of both peasant activism and state power on teh withdrawal of multinational corporations from banana production, Strifller draws on state and popular archives, United Fruit documents, and extensive oral testimony from workers, peasants, political activists, plantation owners, United Fruit administrators, and state bureaucrats. Through an innovative melding of history and anthropology, he demonstrates that, although peasant-workers helped dismantle the foreign-owned plantation, they were unable to determine the broad contours through wich the subsequent system of production - contract farming - emerged and transformed agrarian landscapes throughout Latin America."

Condition: Pages have corner wear, edge soil, and some have soiled spots. Cover has creases, and wear to the edges and corners.
